Good morning all, I hope your weekend is coming to a decent close. i know mine is because I get to finish cleaning my apartment yay!
If you, yes you, reading this toot would be so kind as to either check out my podcast or share it with someone who might need to listen, I would be so grateful ♥️
I'm working today on trying to get the RSS feed fixed to include as well as get the properly on other platforms like iTunes and Spotify.The problem is the platforms being buggy
@geniusmusing I knew there was something missing! I did hint at it I think but you're right, I missed that one big question lying under the assumption that if one's making the decision to go open-source, then that question was already answered.
There are certainly some industries that would crumble under the open-source model, but I would say that's more due to a lack of resources than the option simply not being available. Thoughts?
Thank you for the feedback and thank you for listening :)
@geniusmusing You do have to get pretty creative about making money in open-source.
Obviously you can't really make that much money off of the software itself, but the services you can offer around it are possibly infinite, right?
Also, I'm baffled at how Twitter isn't able to make a profit.They should fight against trends towards being "advertiser-friendly" but they're just shooting themselves in the foot at this point
@geniusmusing I would pay for NextCloud if I was an enterprise for sure. Much better than going with Google's Dyson suite (vacuum joke)
Of course, hosting an instance is a viable option, but how many people want to admin but don't want to host it themselves? From there, I would host my own and take in donations in exchange for being the host and admin.
From there, I'd perhaps build a platform for people from my instance to congregate and use this platform to elevate those who wish to be elevated and perhaps create some sort of storefront with merch that sells products based on user-contributed IP...and so forth
@geniusmusing I mean...isn't that what happens when you make money anyway? XD
